Rigid and flexible solutions for the district heating market
Set ehf Set Pipes GmbH
Set Pipes initial production
activity can be traced back
to the year 1968. Ten years later the
company started the manufactur-
ing of pre-insulated steel pipes with
plastic protective casing. Today, Set
Pipes is the only manufacturer of
insulated pipes and plastic pipes in
The company is a privately run family
business and not on the stock market,
despite the huge success on the
domestic market and export in recent
years. Set Pipes has invested continu-
ously towards internal technology,
worked on numerous development
projects, and placed great emphasis
on staff training and education.
Ensuring a very strong team of quali-
fied staff is by far the most important
resource of the company within the
competition that prevails in the
manufacturing of pre-insulated pipes
for district heating thermal utilities.
Iceland was among the first countries
in the world to use geothermal water
for house heating. Situated in in the
middle of the North Atlantic ocean
on the plate boundary of the North
American plate and the European
plate. Geothermal energy lays very
high in the earths crust and widely
accessible throughout the country.
Set has participated in projects relat-
ed to the acquisition of geothermal
and commercial use. These projects
have been technically challenging
and provide strong demands for Set
Approximately 96% of all build-
ings in Iceland are heated with
geothermal energy, and it is thought
that the Icelandic piping system is
about 5,000 km long. It is estimated
that between 15% and 20% of the
nations standard of living can be
attributed to the resource that has
been called the white gold.
Set Pipe has taken part in activities
outside Iceland, related to insulated
material. Producing for numer-
ous specialty projects, oil and gas
pipelines, cooling systems, insulated
and heated piping systems for water
and sewer systems in Northern
countries as well as working with
many reputable manufacturers of
products required for district heating
pipes, joint material, fittings, valves,
expansion pieces, pumps and other
